I echo most of what the other guests have stated. The owners are very proud, knowledgeable and passionate about their history and their properties. Don't miss the wall paintings in a section of the palace that has yet to be fully restored. The Rawat and his son will keep you endlessly entertained and pampered. We visited on 2 occasions the palace a few km away on the lake. It is hauntingly beautiful both during sunset and at night with bonfires to sit next to and see the palace lit by lamps. I hope the owners are able to one day fully restore this lake palace. The Rawat's staff are well trained and equally enthusiastic to show you around. The food is excusite - the Rawat is a connoissuer and expert chef himself and appeared on a TV program many times to demonstrate his expertise and their traditional recipes. Since I was interested in hsitory the owners took the extra trouble to load my room with some excellent and some rare books. Could go on a lot more but has to be experienced

Room Tip: Spend 2 nights. See the lake palace at sunset and the night. Ask all the questions you want about Rajput and Indian history

We came to Fort Begu by chance. Our booking in another hotel was cancelled and we were taken to Fort Begu. What a stroke of luck! And for our two day stay we were treated like royalty. Ajay, his brother and his staff thoroughly spoilt us and gave us an experience which was the highlight of our stay in Rajasthan. This is a small hotel where we were encouraged to meet other guests, take cocktails together around a camp fire and eat a candlelit meal in the garden. Our rooms were very comfortable and the food was delicious. We loved our outings to the ruined lake palace which looked spectacular when lit at dusk. Please try this hotel - you will not be disappointed.

We spent 2 nights here, a wonderful heritage hotel in rural India. Out of 14 nights in India these are the 2 that will stay in our hearts and minds forever. Ajay, his dad Hari, Mac and Arjun made this a magical, interesting, amusing and informative time. Its not a place to come if you want to lie by a pool and relax but it is THE place to come if you want to stay in a luxurious room and be treated like royalty. Being driven by Ajay to their summer palace to watch the sunset in an open topped jeep was exciting, and the end destination was jaw dropping. On the second night we were taken for a drink by Ajay and Hari .... Im sworn to secrecy about the destination - but if you go there I am sure, like us, you will never forget it. If you want an experience that money cant buy include Fort Begu in your itinerary for a trip to India

This was the 2nd heritage place we stayed at in Rajasthan and we loved it. From arriving early afternoon we were shown to our lovely room, can't remember what the room number was but it was absolutely beautiful on the inside. It was called a suite but I'm surprised it wasn't called the Sheesh Mahal room as there were many mirrors and reflecting ornate walls and windows. We also met the owner, Harri, who literally is royalty, a raja. A fascinating character with many a story to tell. Don't get him started on Jackie Kennedy ..... Anyway, mid afternoon we were given a guided tour around the derelict part of the property (which I understand is planned to be renovated over the coming years back into rooms) by Mac, one of the employees, a lovely friendly guy. After a little rest and having taken some drone footage from the roof we were taken to another crumbling building by the side of a lake, owned by the family, for a sunset drink in one of the towers. Harri's son, Ajay, a prince of course, would normally do this with the guests but was unfortunately very ill while we were there, so Mac took us out there. Coming back to the fort we had time to change and freshen up then come down for drinks with Harri by the fire pit followed by a lovely romantic meal for two surrounded by candles and fires in the garden which was beautifully lit in the evening. The food was very good too. After a quick chat with Harri he retired for the evening to attend to his poorly son. Next morning we had a lovely breakfast in the garden and were waved farewell by Harri, Mac, all the staff and even Ajay who had mustered enough energy to come down just to say goodbye, what a guy. We absolutely loved our stay here at Fort Begu, in hindsight maybe if we'd had more time on this trip we should have stayed a 2nd night to have a look round the village which really was quite beautiful, especially the farmland around the lake where we went for sunset. The only thing I would say about this place is that the owners have organised this so that guests are treated to a bit of the tour of the property and surrounding area as taken, so if you want to just come here and relax you may have to let them know that you're not up for it, but for us we thoroughly enjoyed it and to socialise with real royalty was amazing. Don't miss this place, come here for at least one but ideally two nights.

Room Tip: It was called a suite on the booking, it was the highest floor room there i think.

We booked at the Fort hoping that it would ba good hotel in the conventional sense. Little did we ever expect to be treated like royalties by royalties themselves. Both AjayRajSingh and his father Harisinghji were fabulous and warm hosts. One could never tell from their modesty and down-to-earth attitude that they hail from a long proud ‘Maharana’ lineage. I couldn’t recommend it more to someone looking for a very comefortable, home-away-from-home stay at a 680+ years old fort and be treated as a regal guest.
